National Ecological Observatory Network studies wildfire in unprecedented detail
In response to one of the worst wildfires in Colorado history, scientists from the Warner College of Natural Resources at Colorado State University (CSU) lead a first of its kind, large-scale wildfire impact study on the High Park Fire in partnership with Colorado's new research facility, the National Ecological Observatory Network (NEON). The study is expected to provide critical data to communities still grappling with how to respond to major water quality, erosion and ecosystem restoration issues in an area spanning more than 136 square miles.
